‘[Berry’s] superb Islands has taken 20 years to come from commission to publication – and it has been a professional lifetime in the living … It's the mixture of science and romanticism that gives Islands its charismatic texture: hard-won data, garnished with passion and fancy.’
Robert Macfarlane, Guardian
‘A magnificent review of what makes British and Irish islands special for wildlife, written in an engaging and readable style by one of our foremost geneticists.’
Stephen Moss, Guardian
R. J. Berry was Professor of Genetics at University College London from 1978 to 2000. He has been President of the Linnean Society, the British Ecological Society, the European Ecological Federation, and the Mammal Society. His island research began with studying moths in Shetland in 1959 and then mice on Skokholm in 1960. He has since worked on many other British islands, the Faroe Islands, and islands in the sub-Antarctic and Pacific. This is his fourth New Naturalist. He is the author of ‘Inheritance and Natural History’, ‘Natural History of Shetland’ (jointly with Laughton Johnston) and ‘Natural History of Orkney’, amongst numerous others.
